Dating back to 1839 when Colonel William Light, the man who designed the basic plan for Adelaide, led an expedition into the valley north of the capital, Lyndoch is one of the oldest towns in the state.

Lying at the southern end of the Barossa Valley, Lyndoch’s beginnings were as a processing centre for local wheat growers and it was not until the first vineyard was planted in the Para River catchment that the region's future began to take shape.

Today it is an integral plank in the world-famous Barossa Valley wine industry and a number of small, family-owned vineyards operate alongside such giants as Penfolds, Orlando, Henschke and Seppelt.

It is an area rich in multicultural history as well as award-winning rieslings, chardonnays, semillons, shiraz, cabernets and fine ports and sherries.

And if music is the food of love, it plays on and on in the South Australian Museum of Mechanical Music which hosts an extraordinary collection of old players that range from cylinder and disk machines, to gramophones and juke boxes.

Lyndoch's spiritual centre is the impressive Holy Trinity Church which was consecrated in 1861 while the temporal heart lies in the Lyndoch Hotel, which first opened its doors as the Lord Lynedoch Inn in 1869.
